A school in Norfolk has been given the perfect start to the new term, after receiving an outstanding verdict in every category of its Ofsted inspection.
Alpington and Bergh Apton Church of England VA Primary School published its Ofsted report this week, receiving glowing praise.
The report read: 'Pupils are happy, enthusiastic learners who enjoy coming to school. The teachers have a very good grasp of the subjects they teach and understand how pupils learn effectively.
'Disadvantaged pupils, disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make excellent progress.'
The inspector praised the way in which teachers understood how to promote development in early years, as well as the school's communication with parents.

Headteacher, Teresa Osbourne said: 'As a school we are delighted with the judgement we received; the staff, pupils and parents have all worked very hard to achieve such splendid results over the past five years.
'We are always striving to achieve academic success for all our pupils who continually make progress which is above local, Norfolk and national averages. However what is just as important to us is the recognition that a good education has the broader interests of children at heart, not just academic but the human flourishing of every child.

'We are very proud of the strong relationship the school enjoys with parents and families and these positive links are a cornerstone of our success.'
The one recommendation that the inspection, carried out on July 7-8, made to improve even further was for teachers give clearer advice to children on how to progress and that the children respond better to the school's marking policy.
Alpington and Bergh Apton is a primary school on Wheel Road in Alpington, with 103 mixed gender children on the school roll. When previously inspected in January 2010, the school was judged as good.
